I welcome all children and adults who are in need of support and compassionate space. In our hectic, crazy lives we often go for days, weeks or months without ever getting to feel like we have the entire focus and attention of another human being who is genuinely curious about our internal experience. As a life-long learner and lover of humanity in all its imperfect beauty, I am authentically interested in hearing about your experiences.

My work is largely trauma-focused, helping clients understand the ways that trauma affects the brain and therefore our relationships and daily lives. Together we restructure coping mechanisms that are causing more harm than good. I also have a special focus on the emotional challenges of infertility and pregnancy loss.

I also work with my dog Frodo providing Animal Assisted Therapy focused on processing trauma. Research shows that petting an animal regulates the stress response which allows people to access and work through trauma memories without becoming overwhelmed. Connection with an animal helps us stay grounded!
